con. he called it -- lincoln. he called it land improvements. he meant ports and railroads at the time. public infrastructure is always the public's responsibility. so the question is never whether or not you're going to do it, you have to do it. the question is when does it make most sense? i would submit to you that it makes most sense today. why? because money is as cheap as it's ever going to be. every municipal government throughout this country borrows money by issuing debt bonds to underwrite the cost of building new frals. we -- infrastructure. we could be borrowing money today for about 1%. labor is cheap, equipment is cheap, because both are idling. and we clearly need the infrastructure investment. final thought on this? transportation for america, a not-for-profit organization, identifies 69,000 structurally deficient bridges in this nation. there's over 2,000 structurally deficient bridges in my state of new york. and in western new york we have 99 structurally deficient bridges. every second of every day seven cars drive on a bridge that is structurally deficient. we saw
water port on the east coast. we are planning to take full advantage of the panama canal, the changes there coming soon. which gives us the ability to bring commerce into virginia. we are aggressively building our rail system. going from the port of virginia west to try to get that traffic out west. we are -- just announced that we are building another highway. it will be a toll access highway. but one of the primary purposes of that highway is to bring truck traffic from the port of virginia inland. and connect it directly with interstate 95. and so that will help us again through the commerce side of the equation to bring in new commerce and the commonwealth of virginia. i'm going to mention something that's been a little bit taboo as of late. the governor is not ashamed of it as all. as a matter of fact we've taken full advantage of it. and it was discussed earlier, that's incentives to business. the governor has put significant additional resources into our virginia economic development partnership. both funds that he has at his disposal to incentivize and encourage business to co
much less from and in addition we should secure the port of two pico. if you look at this not which i've turned on its site to show the importance of the gulf of mexico, you see various that demonstrate what people wanted to take. we see if i can get this going here. so this is the initial line exit offered in negotiations. if you look here, this is the polk was hoping to take in january. so what that would've brought us an additional one third of the country of mexico into the united states than what ended up happening. unfortunately on february 19, the treaty of water that they had although. pope decides he has to accept the treaty because there's no other congressional support for the war. he thinks long and hard and right going to have to accept this treaty even though i don't like it and this was that i won't because the pop abilities congress would not grant either men or money to persecute the war and then at least new mexico and outside, california. just to conclude you're committed the antiwar movement achieve his goals? certainly not. henry clay wanted the united states out
to port. it is a half tour of the world and stops in tahiti. so who wouldn't. that's interesting and i really admire him recommend his account. a kind of dawning consciousness of human relationship is quite interesting. thank you so much. [applause] >> i did just write this name to the michelle held up committed to better achieve, brought up of hope and change. i did it because i was talking to the national review online come and interview and said why did she write this? is admit to to be an awakening, something like that? i said you bet it is. it stuns me that half of the american population completely fell for this empty mantra of hope and change. the obama administration was going to be that transcendent administration that got us all together. that is why barack obama earned the white house because he was going to be the great uniter. remember that inaugural address where he said to conservatives, i want to listen to you, especially when we disagree. he was going to meet with conservatives in congress want to wreak. he met twice. so three days after that beautiful speech, the cons
. what should they be doing. >> very simple. more sea, less ports. i'm a big fan of the time you spend at sea. i think there's nothing less desirable than being in port with a straw hat trapped on a bus going to a location. >> where everybody's sent. >> you don't have to always be herded on and off the ship. >> how about travelers? what's your gift for them? >> no more entitlement issues. you're not entitled to anything other than to be nice. you know what? by the time you get to that counter or gate the person who works for that airport or airline have been abused by their own company before you got there. why not be nice. once you're nice they marry you. >> it takes no energy. >> and do what my mother always told me, write your thank-you letters. >> peter greenberg going out on a limb. thank you very much. >>> two weeks ago we reported on a case of jon hammar, a marine veteran who was locked up in mexico for four months. he's on his way home for christmas. as jim axelrod reports the return trip has not been easy. >> reporter: when he crossed over the border into

of which is as the seventh uss enterprise was on her way back to port at pearl harbor. on december 7, 1941. and would later launch the first u.s. strikes of the war against japan at the marshall islands. the current uss enterprise was also on her way home on the 11th of september 2001. just over three weeks later, she would launch the first strike against al qaeda and the taliban in afghanistan. now imagine yourself a board uss enterprise on the night of those first strikes. here's part of what her captain told her crew. good evening, shipmates. the last time americans actually went to war to defend against our homeland was almost exactly 60 years ago. when our threats and her enemies conducted a surprise attack on pearl harbor. during that attack, a different enterprise was at sea on her way home. it was ultimately a response to that typical bloody task of soundly defeating her enemy. and ever since then, when america has gone to war, is to protect freedom and our vital interest, those of our allies. we have not had to defend our homeland since december 7, 1941. however, september 11 our
